Your favourite video game music (past or present) - Globetrotter - 02-21-2010 10:30 AM

I remember playing Saboteur 2 on my Amstrad CPC 464 about 20 years ago (goodness, that makes me sound so old! :shock: :laugh: ).

The music in the game was the best I heard come from the machine, and I've never forgotten the tune.

Fortunately, someone has posted it on YouTube: shappy

An updated version of the tune which another YouTuber has done:

^I've never heard of that game before ssurprised

Anyway favourite video game music...there are so many, old video games had such great music! sdrool

For some reason I can't think of any at the moment though :laugh:

Arcade smash hits on the sega master system, I always had a thing for the music!

It's soooo catchy :laugh:

There was this game back in the 80's that had music inspired by the soundtrack of a documentary called Koyaanisqatsi, the documentary had some awesome music...so needless to say, the video game music was good too :twisted:
Lets see if I find it...

Something more 'modern' now (as in 1998!) - Populous: The Beginning was the first PSOne game I ever bought, and it had some great atmospheric tracks. Here is my favourite:

^that populous soundtrack is pretty awesome ssurprised
I know you posted it in another thread but I don't think I really listened to it the last time, I'm really liking it now. Blob5

I like the soundtrack for the tetrisish game on the sega called Columns shappy
Although it gets darn irritating when you play the game :laugh:

^ I'll always remember playing Golden Axe on my Amstrad CPC 464. Each time I beat Death Adder in what I thought at the time to be the final stage, the cassette player would start to load another bit. Very annoying each and every time, this loading of another bit always went wrong so I never got to se the final, final stage or the ending! smad

v Title track from the most addictive game I've ever played - Civilisation 4!

This totally reminds me of the Baldurs Gate 2 theme tune (because of the similar style). I wonder if they were both done by the same composer?
